Part of the Pittsburgh Pocket Psychiatry series, this volume comprehensively and definitively addresses geriatric psychiatry, focusing on depression, dementia, anxiety as well as managing the caregivers. Additional chapters cover psychotherapy, legal issues, alcohol and drug use, and chronic pain management. Designed to be a highly practical, clinical guide for practitioners, each chapter is clearly written by one or more faculty members from Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic, many of whom are recognized experts in their field. Self-assessment questions help the student learn the material.
